Most people just have a spare tire or a can of fix-a-flat and an auto club card when they hit the road. But as we all know, they do things bigger in Texas, so when some guy from Texas goes for a drive around Rome, he brings along a spare stretch armored limo!

As President George Bush and his entourage approached the US Embassy in Rome this weekend, his custom Cadillac DTS limo decided to pack it in. .After attempting to restart, Bush ultimately got out and walked through the embassy gates, later using the backup limo for the rest of his appointments.

The video after the jump shows the crowd's reaction to Bush's limo breaking down, which was comprised mostly of laughter when the driver attempted to restart the car without success. Nevertheless, the President was cheered when he ultimately exited his stage coach and began to hoof it.

That 'thing' is a tank in disguise.

A car hasn't broke down on me like 10 years.

That tank shouldn't have failed the President. For such an important person once should be more than enough. The tank is simply not reliable.

An African president has better security.
This could happen to anyone. I saw once a brand new Benz stalled on the freeway. Or one of my former employers whose brand new (barely a Week old) Lexus LS, Windscreen shattered on the freeway around 1. PM

But, you got to admit, the American President is a Big deal. they ship all those Tahoes with them? I would not be suprised if they bring a Marines unit of at least 50
